Set behind the bars of the Wentworth Detention Centre, Prisoner: Cell Block H ran for seven years in Australia and has become legendary all over the world for allegedly having wobbly sets, ugly actresses and ridiculous plots. But underneath all that is a damned fine show which dealt with major issues like drug abuse and lesbianism before any other show'd touch them.
